A Quote by Claude M. Bristol on achievement, clarity, desires, direction, effort, goals, idealism, justice, mind, power, thought, and time

The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on acceptance, effort, and mind

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on citizenship, direction, effort, nature, sacrifice, and struggle

When under the pretext of fraternity, the legal code imposes mutual sacrifices on the citizens, human nature is not thereby abrogated. Everyone will then direct his efforts toward contributing little to, and taking much from, the common fund of sacrifices. Now, is it the most unfortunate who gains from this struggle? Certainly not, but rather the most influential and calculating.

A Quote by Clarence F. Robison on achievement, body, day, effort, growth, idleness, laws, life, and spirituality

There is a fundamental law that the tissue of the human body will waste away through idleness and disuse. Conversely, muscles and vessel that are stressed grow and increase in capacity. This same basic law also applies to spiritual and intellectual growth and can be achieved only by continual nourishment and effort in day-to-day living.

A Quote by Clare Booth Luce on effort, failure, success, and women

Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, She doesn't have what it takes. They will say, Women don't have what it takes.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on action, beginning, destruction, effort, gifts, persistence, trying, understanding, and taoism

If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's gift), if you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, if you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, you will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, to know when you can get no further by your own action, this is the right beginning!

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Charlotte Brontë on effort, god, judgment, men, and success

Men judge us by the success of our efforts. God looks at the efforts themselves.

A Quote by Charles W. Nibley on business, effort, excellence, foolishness, god, labor, progress, success, and yielding

There is no excellence anywhere without labor. We would think a man foolish indeed who would say, "l am willing that my business should prosper, or that my farm should yield plentifully, but I'll not stir a peg." But he is no more foolish than the man who says, "I am willing that God should bless me abundantly, but I shall not do anything toward that end myself." We must consistently rely upon the help of the Lord, but we will not make any progress or meet with any success unless we put forth an earnest effort.

A Quote by Charles Michael Schwab on approval, criticism, effort, spirit, and work

I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.
